I used to have one of Ken Thorn's appearance notebooks. I think you may well have it now based on the years you quote. If I recall I gave it to Dave B some time ago - good to keep it in the family.

Ken Thorn anecdote - we were on the supporters' coach to Tooting or Bromley in the early 80s, it doesn't really matter. Traffic was very bad somewhere in south London so the peasants at the back of the coach started revolting. Our current chairman was one of these reprobates (as indeed was I). Mr Thorn, a fine and upright fellow, marched to the back of the vehicle and proclaimed: "You are not helping matters one iota!!" Our current chairman responded in a perfect Scouse accent - "I used to have a Toyota, I've gorra Datsun now" Oh how we laughed....

Another Ken Thorn memory is from an FA Cup match at VS Rugby in the late 80s. There was a big influx of Derby supporters that day who were, in a nutshell, complete savages. Iain Dowie scored for the Greens and they kicked off behind the goal. Ken took a couple of blows and immediately cried out to no-one in particular "Arrest that man!"
